Our Sessions

Breaking Down Barriers to Industrial 5G

Time: 10:00 – 11:00 PDT

Where to start when unlocking new possibilities of 5G networks? What is best to work through the myriad of potential applications and the security considerations required? What are the strategies to navigate technical enablers, and deployment options, like edge and cloud computing, or private and dedicated networks?

Still in the early adoption phase, industrial organisations are exploring the latest 5G offering of low-latency and high bandwidth wireless connectivity that is powering a digital transformation.

In order to deliver a successful transition through the 5G Era and utilise related technologies, the session will explore real-life use cases and valuable insights from industry leaders to discover the best ways of adopting 5G into industrial processes and models, their benefits, and challenges.

The Road to Digital Industry 2030

Time: 11:30 – 12:30 PDT

As the journey continues on the road to digital transformation, we will see billions of real-time data points collected by intelligent connected devices and sensors within the industrial setting.

5G wireless connectivity, with its low-latency and high bandwidth features, will not only support near real-time processes but also enable the offloading of data from machines on the factory floor to the edge or cloud. This perfect storm of technology will enable data processing and analytics to be performed across multiple devices simultaneously, harnessing AI and Computer Vision, to solve existing problems and realise new opportunities.

In this session, we will hear how the 5G era technologies are providing a catalyst for new applications and business models, where are we going and what the digital industrial road ahead looks like by 2030.
